Pakistani politician Imran Khan, the former world-class cricketer, has been injured in a fall at a rally in a suburb of Lahore, the country's capital city.
Khan, the leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party, fell around 5m from what appeared to be a stack of pallets being lifted by a fork lift truck.
After receiving initial treatment at the site of the fall, he was moved to Lahore's Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital, which he founded.
Dr Faisal Sultan, the hospital's chief executive, said Mr Khan had stitches to his head and had suffered a hairline compression fracture on a vertebra on his back.
Had Khan been following the Fork Lift Truck Association (FLTA) guidelines, such an incident would never have happened. To view or download the FLTA's factsheet on The Use of Working Platforms On Forklift Trucks, please go to www.fork-truck.org.uk/app/images/members/Fact-Sheets/FS_18.pdf.
